Supporting Young Veterans who have served our country.

The Young Veterans Project ensures that veterans who have served post-1991 receive the support they need.

The Young Veterans Project is a vital step in supporting the needs of veterans and their families across Victoria.

There are an estimated 29,300 Young Veterans living in our state, many of whom are not receiving the full range of support available from ex-service organisations (ESOs) and the community. It is time to ensure that Young Veterans can share their story and help change the sector to meet their needs.

We need your help to understand how ESOs and the community can support you and your family.

If you have served post-1991, we want to hear your experiences with the ESO sector to ensure it meets the needs of veterans and their families. Share the story of your transition today.

Share Your Story

We would like to thank the veterans and families who completed the ESO Mapping Survey and shared their experiences with ex-service organisations. The Victorian ESOs’ Mapping Project Report is now available to view on the Melbourne Legacy website, or by clicking the ‘view report’ button below.
